Grab that dark print and hold it in front of you. Now listen closely...the calibration "tool" is in your hand.

Now here is what you do: Hold that print next to the screen and adjust the brightness until it's as dark as the print. VOILA! Calibration complete.

And yes, at full brightness on my laptop, your images look a little underexposed. But how do we know that you don't prefer that look? I don't think they look bad, although the snowmobile shot could be brightened up a bit to make the snow WHITE.
